COVID-19 Treat: EPL-2020 Postponed!

The 2020 edition of the Everest Premier League (EPL), which was scheduled from March 14-28, 2020, has been indefinitely postponed over the rising concerns of the coronavirus outbreak.

The EPL organizers’ decision came in response to the Nepali Government’s advice to avoid meetings, festivals, functions and any other public gatherings.

According to the EPL founder and Managing Director Aamir Akhtar, the decision to postpone the upcoming EPLT20 was taken after consulting the Nepal Ministry of Home Affairs, the Cricket Association of Nepal, concerned franchisees, players and other stakeholders.
